International Spine Intervention Society Call for Grant Proposals on High Priority Topics
ISIS is committed to funding research that will address important questions about the effectiveness of interventional spine procedures. The ISIS Research Committee is working to identify important gaps to be addressed in the interventional spine evidence base and encourage research in these areas. To this end, the committee has been working on developing study protocol outlines in areas where more research is likely to be meaningful to our field.
The first four priority areas where ISIS would like to see well-designed and executed research studies conducted are addressed in the following research protocol outlines:
• Does provocation lumbar discography cause premature disc degeneration or herniation?
• Efficacy of repeat TFESIs for radicular pain due to HNP
• Cervical medial branch radiofrequency neurotomy for whiplash induced cervical facet joint pain
• Prevalence estimate of extra-articular sacroiliac joint pain in chronic low back pain subjects using dual diagnostic lateral sensory branch blocks
Investigators interested in carrying out these studies and seeking ISIS grant funding should follow the ISIS procedures for submitting grant proposals, outlined below. Proposals are carefully vetted by the Research Committee, and funding of research proposals is approved at the semi-annual ISIS Board of Directors meetings.
Deadlines for submission are May 1st and November 1st.
The International Spine Intervention Society (ISIS) is dedicated to the advancement of the science of interventional spine care through its support of researchefforts.Thank you for donating your time towards helping us reach this goal, we look forward to receiving your Research Grant Application!
· ISIS membership is a requirement for a research grant
· Multiple grants may be awarded per year
· Research proposal must be original research that is to be performed, not work that is already completed
· Institutional Review Board approval is mandatory when the study involves human or animal subjects
The Research Grant Application should consist of a proposal with the following elements:
· Summary of the project
· Significance of this research in the advancement to understanding in the field
· Background information and research proposal justification
· Research design and methods
· Facilities available to make this study possible
· Budget: total and per year
· Signed Institution Release of Overhead and Indirect Costs
· ISIS Research Grant Application
The Research Grant Application should also include:
· Curriculum Vitae for each investigator
· Investigational Review Board materials
· Consent form
· Outcome tools
Funding of research proposals is approved at the semi-annual ISIS Board of Directors meetings and must be submitted for consideration by May 1st or November 1st.
ISIS does not pay institutional overhead or indirect costs associated with its grants. Applications are to be reviewed and approved by the applicant’s institution prior to submission.
Research grant applications will be reviewed by the ISIS Research Committee using a 100-point scoring system. Proposals are evaluated on scientific merit (10 points), significance (15 points), originality (10 points), methodology (40 points),abstract and background information (10 points), personal and institutionaltrack record (5 points), and feasibility (10 points). Overall evaluation of the application from the perspectives of its level of evidence, relevance to the membership and our patients, potential impact on the related science, clinical decision making and health care policy, and value in terms of impact to budget ratio, will also be considered.
If a research grant application is submitted by an ISIS Research Committee member then he/she is excluded from its review process.
Once the study is completed and the final results are analyzed, it must be presented at the next ISIS Annual Scientific Meeting. It is also expected that the results be published in a peer-reviewed journal.
ISIS must be cited as the source of funding in all publications and presentations from the project or its results. A copy of all publications and presentations must be sent to the ISIS office.
Investigators are required to submit semi-annual research update forms and final research findings to the Research Committee Chair and Director of Research and Quality Improvement. If an investigator fails to do so, they will be denied any future funding and requested to return all funds distributed to them.
